If a store employee asked me to leave so they could close the story for Britney Spears to shop "privately", I'd tell them to stick where the sun don't shine and then vomit all over Britney.

Help me, no matter how many series NBC gives me, I always find a way to screw it up. Maybe the next time NBC wants me to star in a show, I wont actually appear in the show.

What are the odds that Imus's slur would happen at a time when his listener was tuned in?

Tarantino is a well known thief who lacks any original ideas in his film making. instead, He rips off ideas/themes/styles/camera angles from previously released underground films, calls them his own, and smiles with a mouth full of sh*t, patting himself on the back for how ef'ing clever he was to "reference" that one particular film. for example, here is a wiki rundown of everything he stole to make Kill Bill:

Oh, for the love, get on with it already. It's been forever waiting on the ANS baby daddy results, the darn drumroll's been going in my head for a while now. Maury would have needed two days tops.

Forget Andy Richter, they cancelled The Black Donnellys. You bastards!(directed at NBC)

I agree with Tom, I have seen a lot less of Katie's teeth these past months. However, when realizing that you've made a huge mistake that you have to live with (along with all of its relatives 24 friggin 7) until you can make a hasty retreat does make it hard to appear happy in public.

just when you thought it was safe to go back to the theater.... another jurassic park movie.

Kirsten, hon, you can't make a blanket statement like that. Not everyone can handle the happy buds.

Some people get paranoid or unpleasant when they smoke ganja. Others get lazy and lose their motivation, content to spend days or weeks watching the world pass them by. And still others find themselves bedding down with anything in pants.

Not that I'm all that worried by that last subgroup. -- wink --

I am going to laugh my a-- off when the ANS results come out and none of the three losers are the daddy.

I still feel really sorry for the little kid though - what a circus life she is going to be stuck in.

Actually, I've always thought the world would be a better place if everyone did Ectasy on a regular basis. Think about how happy and loving we would all be.....

To Kirsten: My cousin, in the state pen, feels the same way; maybe you two can hook up

Tom: Of course she's unhappy. She spent the last year living out a teenage girl fantasy with a movie star that you manipulated to sell movie tickets. Now, she stuck with a controlling husband who trying to save his "public image" while your children long for they mother Nicole. Smart move, Tom.

What b said.

When I came out of the theatre after seeing JP2 I told my companion that if I ever met Steven Spielberg, I'd beat him up and take my $6 back.

I really should calculate what that $6 would be worth now, 10 years later, and adjust the number. But I'm still going to pop Mr Spielberg a good one...

Of course Tarantino stole someone's ideas for Grindhouse. That was kinda the point wasn't it?

The first folks in line for that lawsuit should be the folks behind Duel, Vanishing Point, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, & all those other crazy car flicks from the 70s.

Dear Kirsten Dunce:

People who don't have real jobs (you know, like acting) can afford to smoke pot and be happily impaired without any discernable difference in their performance. I'm not sure you'd appreciate it if your airline pilot, doctor/paramedic, limo driver, accountant, etc. were so inclined to indulge.

So when Britney tried on clothes, was she wearing underwear?? And given that she was indeed wearing a tea towel, did she buy some (apparently much-needed) clothes for herself?

And please tell me those "giraffe fur" jackets are fake fur ...

It didn't take nearly as long as I thought for rumors of Katie's unhappiness to become public. I figured it'd take years. Maybe if Katie had some normal friends (like the ones she used to have pre-Tom) and could escape the Cruise Compound populated with nutty Cruise family members and Scientology handlers, she'd feel better!

And what's up with the Mohawk hairdos on both Angelina's Asian kids?

"Quentin Tarantino steals ideas from other movies"

Oh Please, Those film students should be force to repeat Film History 101, and write an 5 page paper on "Why my movie will be never be as interesting as Tarantino's on his worst day."
